NZEI Teacher Strike

24 May 2019

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

As you may be aware the members of the teachers’ union, the New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI), voted to strike for a full day of industrial action.  This is scheduled for Wednesday, 29 May 2019.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff and decided that, unfortunately, we can’t provide normal teaching services.  The school will therefore be closed during this strike.

It’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike.

I appreciate that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact me if you have any queries relating to this decision.


Yours sincerely,

Mark Hindmarsh

Chair Board of Trustees
